Sensory perception in the real world requires proper integration of different modality inputs. The process of multisensory integration is not uniform. It varies from individual to individual and changes at different behavioral states of the animal. What factors affect the multisensory integration? Here I present our recent findings on neural circuit mechanisms for modulation of ... Read more about "BMI Seminar // Modulation of multisensory integration in the posterior parietal cortex"

BMI SEMINAR // Impulse control: from the urge to its inhibition, a transnological approach to the vulnerability to compulsive disorders
It has long been suggested that failure appropriately to inhibit impulses stems from a deficit in prefrontal cortical inhibitory function. Here it will be suggested that impulsivity, which predicts the vulnerability to develop addiction to stimulant drugs as well as compulsive behaviours as observed in Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and early onset Parkinson’s Disease, also stems ...

Inaugural lectures - Honorary Lecture
17:15-18:15 SV 1717
Stimulating the human brain to enhance brain function and behaviour, and especially to treat patients suffering from neuropsychiatric diseases is a dream and goal in clinical and behavioural neuroscience since more than 2000 years. First reports applying non-invasive electrical stimulation delivered by discharges of electro-fish to the brain are dating back to 50 AC (Scribonius ...
